At the end of the 1940s, a German doctor gathered his disabled patients at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, in Buckinghamshire, and organised the first unofficial Paralympic Games in history - now referred to as the 1948 International Wheelchair Games.
More than 60 years later, Martin McElhatton, Chief Executive of the Stoke Mandeville Stadium, and Tanni Grey-Thompson, a Paralympic athlete and Team GB member, pay tribute to Sir Ludwig Guttmann and those first Paralympians.
